Paris

Visit Paris, Frances capital and largest city! One of the worlds leading cultural centres and ranked in the top three most influential countries in the world, there is no more exhilarating place to visit! You can fly with Austrian Airlines to Paris and when there do not miss out on a visit to the nineteenth-century opera house Opéra Garnier elegant and the sophisticated classical music played there. Or, if opera is not your thing, then make sure to check out the magnificent Eiffel Tower standing at 1063ft over the city centre of Paris. It offers some of the best views of the city centre allowing you to take in the true beauty of this great city! If you are interested in art, make sure to check out the Louvre which is the worlds most visited museum with some of the worlds most prized works of art on show. Forever emblematic in romantic hearts is the "City of Love". It is also held in history buffs' minds as a city rich with history, in the creative as abundant in art, and for fashion plates as the epitome of innovative haute couture. The most common and enriching destinations are the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre Museum, the Notre Dame Cathedral, taking in a show at the Moulin Rouge or the Palais Garnier, enjoying an afternoon at the opulent and historic Versailles Palace, or just simply strolling across the bridges along the Seine River and taking in the local cuisine and wine. There are various ways to arrive, and it all depends on your own personal travel plans or budget. There are two primary airports: Charles de Gaulle (CDG), and Paris-Orly Airport (ORY). To make general flights to Paris search regardless of specific airport, use the city code 'PAR'. To better make the most of your budget, keep an eye out on flight and hotel packages and the exchange rates several months in advance to get a feel for the market fluctuations and when to strike on fares. Once in the city, start every morning with a cup of espresso and a crust of baguette, walk everywhere and take in the sights, and buy an affordable pass for their intricate and efficient metro system. Make use of 'S'il vous plait' and 'merci' often. The French aren't as snooty as they're said to be, but manners are always internationally appreciated. By the end, you will be sad to go.

The Broken Arm

They know each other from university: Anaïs Lafarge, Guillaume Steinmetz and Romain Joste. And pretty soon it was clear: when it comes to lifestyle and fashion they all agree with each other. That's why they founded the online magazine De Jeunes Gens Modernes in 2009 - along with five other friends.   Four years later, it's time for giving their mutual taste its own space - Anaïs, Guillaume and Romain open their own concept store: The Borken Arm in the Marais, named after a piece of art by Marcel Duchamp. The goods are carefully selected: you'll find garments by  Aurélie Bidermann, Christophe Lemaire, Kenzo, Isaac Reina, but also Nike, Our Legacy or Vans. The motto: Everything that catches their eyes during their work for the online magazine, everything that they personally like and that can be worn on a daily basis finds its way into the store. And it wouldn't be a concept store if there wasn't the attached café with little snacks and coffee from Norway (Solberg & Hansen). That's where the three friends cultivate their own friendship, and make new friends as well.

Louvre

There's one thing that you can kiss goodbye: the notion that you can see all this Museum has to offer in one visit. The Louvre boasts a massive 47,000m2 exhibition space. Don't forget to take a map from the front desk because you are sure to get lost amongst the great tomes. With the map in hand, select your favourites and go for it!   The highlight will remain the Mona Lisa for evermore, who now boldly casts her smile from behind a plate of armoured glass. Well at least for those that have the patience to line-up in the queue waiting to see her. The Louvre however has much much more to offer; with ancient Egyptian works, Oriental art, Greek sculptures and 19th century paintings, there's something for people from all walks of life here.

L'As du Fallafel

Another must-east in Paris: a fresh Falafel. As there is one Falafel stand after the next in the Rue des Rosiers, it may take a bit of trial and error before you find the perfect falafel.   So we will give you a tip: you won't be sorry at L'As du Fallafel as they whip up one of the best falafels in town. The formidable queue at the counter confirms our belief, but thank top organisation, the falafel masters here won't keep you waiting long. Whilst you are waiting in line, your order and money is already taken, so by the time you make it to the counter, everything is ready and waiting to go. Fresh bread, crispy falafel and crisp salad with perfect spices. Remember: This is your one and only chance to find lunch under 5 euros in Marais.

Hotel Eldorado

Is a hotel just for tourists? Not necessarily. The small and chamrming Hotel Eldorado, with an attached bistro is loved by Parisians, for good reason!   The green inner courtyard is so appealing and inviting that you never want to leave, and the location is very quiet and peaceful, which makes the Eldorado the ideal place to stay, eat and feel good! The rooms are charming, even if they are simply furnished. But be warned, some rooms do not feature their own bathroom! But the prices here are very modest for Paris standards. Double rooms are available from 50 euros per night.
